Temple University GIS Day, Wednesday, November 18, 2015
Making a difference in communities with GIS and spatial analysis
Keynote presentation by John Duchneskie (Assistant Managing Editor/ Design and Graphics, The Philadelphia Inquirer).
Temple University is pleased to announce that we will once again be hosting geographic information systems (GIS) Day for 2015. GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
GIS links locations (where) to information (what), allowing us to question, map, analyze and interpret data and better understand spatial relationships, trends and patterns. GIS applications are increasingly essential to science, industry and government and are quickly becoming important in everyday life for people and communities.
This FREE EVENT will include lightning talks by many groups at Temple University and around Philadelphia on how GIS is used to make a difference, an employment workshop featuring Temple alumni working in the GIS field, and a keynote presentation by John Duchneskie (Assistant Managing Editor/ Design and Graphics, The Philadelphia Inquirer). The theme for this year’s GIS Day at Temple is “Making a difference in communities with GIS and spatial analysis.”
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Students, educators, researchers, and professionals interested in learning more about GIS and how it is making a difference in our lives and communities.
WHERE: Temple University: 1810 Liacouras Walk (conference Suite)
WHEN: November 18, 2015 between 11:00AM-6:00PM
